A Closer Look at the 4 Repayment • Differences: • Repayment structure (repayment amounts at various points in time) • Total payment amount • Similarities: • All interest charges were calculated at 8% • They all achieved the same purpose of repaying the loan within 5 years Copyright Oxford University Press 2011 .

it would have no preference about whether it received $5000 now or was paid by any of the 4 repayment plans. • The 4 repayment plans are equivalent to one another and to $5000 now at 8% interest Copyright Oxford University Press 2011 .Equivalence • If a firm believes 8% was reasonable.

one can convert different types of cash flows at different points of time to an equivalent value at a common reference point • Equivalence is dependent on interest rate Copyright Oxford University Press 2011 .Use of Equivalence in Engineering Economic Studies • Using the concept of equivalence.
